    " Third in the series of William Kent Krueger, Purgatory Ridge continues the story of Cork O'Connor and his family and friends of Aurora, Minnesota. When an explosion kills t;he night watchman at Karl Lindstrom's lumber mill, former sheriff Cork agtrees to help investigate even though he has mixed feelings since he is part Anishinaabe and his wife Jo represents the tribe in legal dealings. When Lindstrom's wife, son,Jo, and his own son Stevie are kidnapped, the suspense ratchets up to an almost unbearable pace. While Jo's sister Rose stays with Cork's two daughters, Cork pursues the two criminals thought to be Le Pere and Bridger who were asking for a two million dollar ransom. As always, the area around Aurora, Minnesota plays an enormous part in the story. A lot of the action occurs on Lake Superior including the final resolution. Ready for the next one, The Devil's Bed.

    " Not his best but a thriller to the end. His descriptions makes you yearn for Lake Superior. Best line of book; "conscience was a devil that plagued the individual. Collectively, a people squashed it as easily as stepping on a daisy. Then the mystery unravels several characters that either ignore their devils, and one who ignores and then does what is right and the strong who stick with their conscience. I love Krueger's writing! Great Read! "
